CE Sponsor Information

Board Rules governing Continuing Education are found in Minnesota Rules Ch. 9100.1000.

CE programs sponsored by the AVMA, CVMA, AHA, regional specialty boards, state and local VMA's, colleges of veterinary medicine, academic or specialty groups, academies of veterinary practice, international veterinary organizations, USAHA, USDA, and the Minnesota Board of Animal Health are pre-approved and do not require individual approval.

Sponsors of CE programs not automatically pre-approved as described above must submit an application for course approval at least 90 days prior to the presentation date.

If your program includes a speaker who is not a board certified specialist, please include the Continuing Education Speaker Biography Form with your application request.

Please use the Veterinarian Continuing Education Sponsor Application to apply for approval. 

NOTE: Effective 4/10/2019, Ongoing CE Programs must apply for re-approval every 12 calendar months from the time they are originally approved.

If you anticipate the program will be offered in several states, you may wish to seek approval through the American Association of Veterinary State Boards' Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE).

NOTE:   Effective 7/1/2007, a $50 CE sponsor fee is charged for review and approval of each CE program for program application review.  A $50 check to MN Board of Veterinary Medicine must be sent with application (credit cards not yet accepted).
